Man Mistakenly Released From Prison Lived Upstanding Life, Now Gets Released For Real

Lima-Marin's co-defendant, Michael Clifton, is serving 98 years in prison.

On Tuesday, a judge ordered the release of Lima-Marin, who had returned to prison three years ago after he was mistakenly released decades early from a almost 100-year sentence.

The Colorado Department of Corrections said in a statement that Lima-Marin had been moved from the Fremont Correctional Facility in CaƱon City to the Denver Reception and Diagnostic Center in preparation for his release, and that a Criminal Justice Information Services review determined he might have an Immigration and Customs Enforcement detainer.

They were among thousands of Cuban refugees who emigrated to the USA after the Castro regime announced that all who wished to go were free to board boats at the port of Mariel in what has become known as the 1980 Mariel boatlift.

CBS Denver reports that Jasmine Lima-Marin surprised her sons on Tuesday with the news that their father would be coming home, only to learn on Wednesday that he had been placed on an ICE hold.

Lima-Marin was convicted in 2000 in the armed robbery of two video stores. A paperwork mix-up led to him being improperly released in 2008, and it would take prison officials until 2014 to figure out he was no longer behind bars.

During almost six years of freedom, Rene Lima-Marin married, became a father, became active in his church and secured a job installing glass windows in skyscrapers.

In 2014, his prosecutor checked on his whereabouts and found out about the error and Lima-Marin's release.

Williams did not respond to a call for comment, nor did Judge Carlos Samour, Jr. of the 18th Judicial District, who ordered Lima-Marin's release Tuesday. He was then immediately detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials.


His father, Eli Borges, told the Post that Lima-Marin became a legal resident when they arrived but never applied for US citizenship like his parents had done. Earlier Wednesday, after Lima-Marin had been released from his Colorado sentence, ICE officials took him into custody "pending his removal to Cuba".

President Donald Trump has been critical of Obama's efforts to improve relations with Cuba.

"From there, there have been a series of federal policies that have changed including the wet-foot-dry-foot policy", Martinez says.

The Colorado Legislature approved a nonbinding resolution earlier this month urging Gov. John Hickenlooper to grant Lima-Marin clemency.

"We can't imagine the emotional roller coast this family has endured".

Lima-Marin was supposed to serve the sentences for his crimes consecutively.

"After its utter lack of care led to Lima-Marin's premature release and prolonged erroneous liberty, in January 2014, the government chose to compensate for its transgressions by swiftly turning back the clock and returning Lima-Marin to prison. disregarding everything that had transpired between April 2008 and January 2014", Samour said. About 600 are in the custody of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, according to statistics by the agency.

Lima-Marin's attorney Kimberly Diego says Lima-Marin came to the USA from Cuba at the age of 2 during the 1980 Mariel boatlift.
